I'm having trouble to understand why "." (point) is nor working on OS1.11, with Win10, when I try to change some material property, say I need thickness to be 0.2 instead of 0.1, and I cant do this simple change.

I'm located in Europe, and decimal separator is "," instead of ".", but even that I have changed in WIN10, and I keep having the same problem.

Can someone help?

I use the ASCII decimal number for inserting atypical characters. For example, 10°C. The degree symbol is ASCII 248. Hold down the Alt key and type 248 on the numeric keypad, let the Alt key up and the character appears. The point or period decimal separator is Alt 046: .
